Please Stop Just Sayin’

Much as I enjoy pop culture, I tire of its obnoxious words and phrases. Here, several I could do without:
Just sayin’. If you’d stopped one sentence short, you would have been just saying exactly what it was you wanted to say. As it is, you are now tacking on a verbal shrug to effectively back yourself away from your own words. Are you or are you not sayin’?
I know, right? I’m not entirely convinced that you do.
Totes. Unless you’re referring to multiple tote bags, please finish your word.
El oh el. Did you just “text” out loud without the use of a cell phone? That’s called “speaking”– try it with real words.
FAIL. Misappropriation of trademark capitalization just looks like unnecessary shouting. It also looks like you don’t know a noun from a verb. Failure!
Epic fail. Knock it off already.
That’s what I’m sayin’. No, in fact that’s what I’m saying; We both know this because I just said it. You find something else to say.
Which pop culture words or phrases have you had enough of?
